Open Space Strategy

Open space is all public land set aside for outdoor enjoyment, recreation and nature conservation. This includes parks, gardens, plazas, reserves, and urban plazas.

Attractive, safe and accessible open spaces have positive social, economic and environmental benefits for the community and are known to improve public health, wellbeing and quality of life.  

We have developed an Open Space Strategy (pdf, 1.2MB) to guide the future design, quantity, and management of our public open spaces. This strategy sets a city-wide plan and policy framework for the future design, management and improvement of our open space and the foundations to deliver on our open space needs
